In January, I sent out a quick survey to my followers asking you how I can be the best help for you? How can I give you what you need? And wow, you guys had some great things to say! The most popular request was "how do I use your products?" along with "more blog posts!" So, I'm here to do BOTH of those things for you right now!
Up today, an a-typical use of the popular Perpetual Birthday and Anniversary Calendar. These have been long-time staples in my shop, I've sold a few thousand of them, and well, that feels pretty good! So what if sending cards isn't really your thing? I've come up with a really fun idea for you, read on and let me know what you think!
Here's how you can use a perpetual calendar as a record for something like, your relationship with your significant other.
Instead of filling in birthdays of people you know, use the dates to fill in milestones in your relationship. Your first date, your engagement date, your wedding day.
Keep adding year after year, vacations, pet adoptions, birth of your children.
Add in the purchase or sale of a home, a job promotion, a move.
Each month as you flip through the calendar is a trip down memory lane where you can see all the amazing things you've done together.
If you know me, you know I am really sentimental. I LOVE keeping records and looking back at all my favorite memories, but the problem with keeping up with all of that is TIME. Precious time. Scrapbooking takes time, blogging about travels takes time, making photos books and albums takes time. And more often than not, by the time I have time, I forget to add things I really would have loved to remember.
The best part about using a perpetual calendar to jot down these milestones, is that it only takes a few seconds. I may be busy, but I have a few seconds to jot down something that will bring me joy for many years to come. As the years go on, the lines fill up, dates will overlap, but what an awesome record of the life you made together!
